The Rosa String Works Story
Rosa String Works was born out of my desire to play and build my own acoustic instruments. Back in 1982 I couldn’t afford nor justify spending thousands of dollars on a mandolin since I was just a beginner. So I decided to build my own. I soon built another, then repairs started rolling in. The rest as they say is history. I have since built more than 50 custom instruments including at least 40 mandolins, several violins, and about a half dozen guitars. I am sure the number of repairs would count in the thousands. NOTE: I retired as of May 19, 2023. No longer accepting any Luthier work. It was a good run, but it is now over.
I hope you will take your time looking through my site. When you are through looking, please check out my YouTube Channel for well over 1,200 videos regarding building and repairing instruments. I might add that I also have quite a few videos on building various types of machinery, including a hydraulic log splitter, a bandsaw mill, and a hydraulic brush hog, just to name a few.
